Classic Maya Provincial Politics Xunantunich and Its Hinterlands

Classic Maya Provincial Politics Xunantunich and Its Hinterlands
Classic Maya Provincial Politics: Xunantunich and Its Hinterlands by Lisa J. LeCount and Jason Yaeger
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0816528845 | 464 pages | PDF | 7 MB

Most treatments of large Classic Maya sites such as Caracol and Tikal regard Maya political organization as highly centralized. Because investigations have focused on civic buildings and elite palaces, however, a critical part of the picture of Classic Maya political organization has been missing.
The contributors to this volume chart the rise and fall of the Classic Maya center of Xunantunich, paying special attention to its changing relationships with the communities that comprised its hinterlands. They examine how the changing relationships between Xunantunich and the larger kingdom of Naranjo affected the local population, the location of their farms and houses, and the range of economic and subsistence activities in which both elites and commoners engaged. They also examine the ways common people seized opportunities and met challenges offered by a changing political landscape.
The rich archaeological data in this book show that incorporating subject communities and peopleand keeping them incorporatedwas an ongoing challenge to ancient Maya rulers. Until now, archaeologists have lacked integrated regional data and a finegrained chronology in which to document shortterm shifts in site occupations, subsistence strategies, and other important practices of the daily life of the Maya. This book provides a revised picture of Maya politicsone of different ways of governing and alliance formation among dominant centers, provincial polities, and hinterland communities.
